that. you're also taxing the middle class under the ryan plan. that is disdain today. >> all right, dr. ruiz. so do you want a 30-second rebuttal of the campaign? >> of course, i do. this is critically important. was there police brutality or was there not? was it an elder or a child? these things, folks, are in the press. they are in "the boston herald," they are in the harvard newspaper. they are documented. they are written. they're spelled out for people to see. it is critically important that people know that who he's saying he is right now is not who he is. further, what i said in that email message was that the city councilman should have been held accountable for allowing durhamville to be the third-world condition that it was and that it continues to be. have your party release the entire interslew. -- interview. release the interview that exonerates me. >> we're down to the last couple of questions. elizabeth, you have the floor. >> dr. ruiz, in 2010 a bipartisan federal commission unveiled the plan to cut the nation's deficit by $4 trillion through a mix of tax increases and
people are fat cats we need to tax them more and so oi don't think that this is a constructive relationship, i think you see that when a go i like steve wynn -- a guy like steve wynn finally had enough and erupts, steve wynn is a democrat he voted for barack obama and had close ties. so i think you see this as a equal opportunity, not a republican issue not a democrat issue but a frustration in the be community. neil: i think you hit the nail on the head. that it is a frustration on part of the business community, we have seen it coming out of likes of brokerage firms, ratio of almost 5 to 1 giving to mitt romney rather than guy they were drown to 4 years ago barack obama. we're seeing it evan high-tech executives, intel ceo saying that policies don't help us, so this seems to be spreading like like a wildfire, but mr. wynn's comes so north worthy he was not afraid to go out on the limb and be so publicly blunt about it, do you expect others to follow? >> it is difficult for others to do, that but privately you hear a lot of concern nation over this -- concern nation. neil: why
-end, point, where a number of provisions need to be dealt with. it is a massive combination of taxes and spending. we have the george w. bush era tax cuts that were extended two years ago and now expire at the end of the year. these are tax cuts that lower tax rates,hat impact americans all across the income scale. you have tax breaks on higher income, lower income that would shift if congress fails to act. there are middle-class tax breaks that are part of that. congress does not do anything, almost everyone's taxes would go off. there is a sizeable package of spending cuts to the federal government, 100 billion for the next fiscal year that would hit several departments evenly across the pentagon and domestic agencies. these spending cuts were the product of white listeners would remember as the debt ceiling negotiations -- of what listeners would remember as the debt ceiling debate where leaders could not get the debt load under control and they essentially said all right, since we fail to come up with a plan to a month next year we will automatically trigger these -- to come up w
on that but the fiscal cliff being the package of spending cuts and tax increases that are scheduled to go into effect the end of the year. and there is a lot of worry among economists and business people that could throw the economy and spending cuts in defense, you've got a lot of defense contractors word rid about what is going to happen after the turn of the new year. it's anybody's guess in terms of whether congress can come together after the election but before every new person takes office. there is hope that in the november through january period that congress and the white house can come to an agreement and either postpone those spending cuts or tax increases or come to some new agreement on the budget that could replace the fiscal cliff. i think there will be a postponement of it and perhaps waiting for the new presidential and congressional elections, wait until they come in and sort it out. but depending on how the election goes, the lame duck session which will be in office after the election might be a reason to make a deal before the new people come in. so we'll see. host: the next cal
over joe biden's smile. here is a little of last night's debate on taxes. [video clip] >> the middle class will pay less and people making a million dollars will begin to attributed -- to contribute slightly more. the continuation of the bush tax cuts, we argued those tax cuts for the wealthy should be allowed to expire. of those, 800 million billion dollars of that goes to people making car minimum of $1 billion. we see no justification in these economic times, they are not asking for this continued tax cut, but my friends are insisting on it. if 120,000 families, by continuing that tax cuts, will get an additional $500 billion in tax relief over the next 10 years and their income is an average of $8 million. we want to expend the middle class tax cut permanently. these guys will not allow us to. in the senate we say let's have a vote on middle-class tax cuts and the upper class tax cut and let's vote on it. >> our entire premise of the tax reform plans is to grow the economy and create jobs. it's a plan estimated to create 7 million jobs. we think that the government taking a 28% o
session is what to do about the fiscal cliff, this whammy, this triple whammy of tax hikes and defense cuts and social program cuts that are scheduled to take effect the first of the year. i talked to one democratic congressman, a leader last night, i ran into him at an event in suburban washington. he said, don't look for congress to do anything substantiative in that lame duck, however, they might push that deadline back, work out some kind of deal, push it back six months, and get some serious negotiations on what to do about that fiscal cliff, some time in the springtime. >> mike viqueira, thank you. >>> the spin machine is in full effect over those jobs numbers. first, president obama used his weekly address to tout that drop in unemployment numbers to 7.8. >> more americans are entering the workforce, more americans are getting jobs. >> but mitt romney on his weekly podcast this morning argued that it is just more proof that obama's policies had failed. >> we created fewer jobs in september than in august, and fewer jobs in august than in july. and we've lost over 600,000 manufac
trillion in cut and tax cut for millionaire and billionaires. >> the obama camp has been using a study by princeton economist harvey rosen to back up that romney's plan is paid for by tax cut on middle class but there was pushback from rosen saying he was misrepresented, saying increase in the tax burden on lower and middle income individuals is not required in order to make the overall plan revenue neutral. >> he would be the first to say this is not a monument to one man. >> under backdrop in california today, the president held an official event designating the chavez national monument that may help rally hispanic voters. new politico, george washington university battleground tracking poll of likely voters shows president may have an intensity problem. only 73% support him say they are extremely likely to vote compared to 86% who back romney. >> they know the race has tightened. >> bret: ed henry traveling with the president in california. ed thanks. >>> we are less than a month away from election day. much of the country is already taking part in early voting. we are taking our we
. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and still preserve -- >> not mathematically possible. >> it is possible and it's been done before. >> it has never been done before. >> it has never been -- >> jack kennedy lowered -- >> oh, be now you're jack kennedy? >> republicans and democrats have worked together on this. >> was that nervous laughter of the audience that you could hear? whol had to meet the threshold of competency and he did. biden scored points on substance. don't be surprised if we hear the most effective lines of attack from the president himself at next week's town hall-style debate in new york. the question is, how much was biden hurt on style. republicans did what they could to turn him into al gore, the eye rolls, sighs, that kind of thing. >> he reminded me of al gore in 2000 walking over and standing by president bush and getting in his face. >> i don't know if he thought it was a joke but he was laughing a lot. >> it was bizarre. i thought it was belittling. >> when the other side is spending their time tweeting and going after eye rolls and smirks, they are losing the deba
." senate -- gang of eight sikhs alternative plans." at stake is not only the size of the tax burden on ordinary americans, but also the size of the economic mess that the next administration will inherit. unless congress can reach an agreement, tax bills will automatically increase for nearly 90% of americans next year. we covered senator schumer's event yesterday. here is what he had to say. >> it is an alluring prospect to cut taxes on the wealthiest people, reduce the deficit, but the mass dictates you cannot have it all. the arithmetic, as president clinton said. the reality is, any path forward that promises to cut rates will fail to reduce the deficit or fail to protect the middle class from a net tax increase. you can at most achieve two of these goals. anyone pushing a plan purporting to accomplish all three is not telling the truth. the sooner we are honest with ourselves about this, the easier it will be to negotiate an actual compromise on taxes and on deficit reduction. host: senator charles schumer, democrat, new york, yesterday, talking about these negotiations on the
. tax cheat and loves to lay off people and loves to lay off people all in favor of the rich . they heard romney explain himself, and explain the depth of his compassion and the strength of his feeling, the rest of the country got to know him. >> gretchen: could it be that women are thinking about the economy and not just contraception which was what the democrat platform was. they heard about the economy in that debate. >> they had the economy on their mind all along. most of the job loss has been among women. they have had that on their mind and people particularly women wanted to do something different about the economy and change. but they were worried about romney and so they couldn't make the transition . the debate moved them closer and the transition became easier. >> gretchen: dick will stay around. bob beckle said biden will beat paul ryan leak a drum. and the law said you can't kick her out. we are not kidding. ♪ ♪ ♪ here i am. ♪ back in the middle with you. ♪ ♪ [ female announcer ] food, meet flavor. flavor, meet food. it's time for swanson flavor boos
economic theory of tax cuts for the rich, despite the fact he deny attend tax cuts, and the math. and let's go to war with sesame street but give wall street a big, wet, kiss, that is call what got us into this mess, we spent four years digging out of it. >>> meanwhile, gingrich saying the numbers were good for the president, but the overall picture is still gloomy. >> i think it was a significant help to the president. imagine coming out at 8.2 following the debate, i mean people would have entered the week saying it is close to the end. so it is part of the whole process, the campaign will go down to the end. it will be one of the most interesting campaigns in american history, i think you will see it go back and forth somewhat. on friday, the imf said probably no recovery until 2018. >> more reaction from them on the president's debate in just a moment. but first, here is the gallop daily tracking poll, mitt romney closing the gap on president obama, who still leads by three points, 49-46, and taking to the tv air waves, the romney camp claiming the president's plan will increase taxes
to be revenue neutral. in one sentence he said he would not lower taxes on the upper income americans and rather not raise taxes on upper income americans but he would lower the tax rate from 35, 40 to 35% or to 25%. how can both be true? you can't say i'm lowering tax without lowering tax. >> you're raising revenue by eliminating loopholes. >> he didn't say what loopholes he would cut. unless he is going to do that you don't have the math to do it. martha: see he said would take it to congress to decide how loopholes. >> he has not been specific at all. martha: okay. tucker what do you think about this strategy because clearly we're hearing it from everybody from robert gibbs on down the line. >> right. martha: that they are saying a different mitt romney showed up the other night. the president has joked about it. bill clinton been joking in las vegas. welcome back, mitt romney. who is this guy? this is clearly where they're going to go here. will it work? >> if you look at poll numbers i don't think the obama people are actually laughing about it. say that. all campaigns accuse one another of
stunned that obama didn't mention that last week. and, of course, romney's income taxes and how he made his money at bain consulting. those are all issues i think we will hear from joe biden on. and it is very different than what biden's pass was four years ago, steve, as you recall facing sarah palin. the biggest challenge been for biden was don't patronize sarah palin, don't bully sarah palin certainly, try to a quarter to a certain degree of respect. i think this is a different time, and paul ryan is a different opponent. >> there's been what some are calling the rebuttal as both congressman paul ryan, republican vice president to nominate and vice president biden try to set expectations for the debate on thursday. let me share with you will paul ryan said on the fox news channel late last month. >> he's fast on the cup, he's a witty guy. he knows who he is and he's been doing this for 40 years. so you're not going to rattle joe biden. joe biden on the national stage, he's ran for president twice in a sitting vice president. what i hope to achieve is to give people an alternative. ve
neutral. in one sentence he said he would not lower taxes on the thot ees ome aricaan w lrex rate from 35, 40 to 35% or to 25%. how can both be true? you can't say i'm lowering tax without lowering t. >> yu're raingee edn at. lole w c unless he is going to do that you don't have the math to do it. martha: see he said would take it to congress to decide how loopholes. >> he has not been specific at all. martha: okay. cker what do you think abouhis strategy because omry fere hearing i gi o dhein different mitt romney showed up the other night. the president has joked about it. bill clinton been joking in las vegas. welcome back, mitt romney. who is this guy? this is clearly where they're going to go here. mbi t ko? ug a icly th all campaigns accuse one another of dishonesty, bending the truth that is pre conventional. what is different here, as you suggested this is strategy. this is the core obama argument agast romney. iad pon l. ire is personal attack. i'm not whining about that. i'm merely noting that it is not a very effective sttegy. it winds the base up. gets people already goingo vo
president give critics an opening when he talked about a tax hike. let's listen. >> you know the phrase they always use? obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. guess what? yes, we do, in one regard. we want to let that $1 trillion tax cut expire so the middle class doesn't have to bear the burden of all the money going to the super-wealthy. >> does the vice president's style create a risk for the democratic ticket? >> he does. you know, it's something that they've been watching with joe biden for years, but joe biden has been preparing for an entire week. by thursday when the debate happens, he will have spent almost a week at his home in wilmington preparing. and when he is prepared, he is much better in that he doesn't make those same gaffes. when he nose what it is that he needs to say and he's not going off the cuff in this style, he does better. >> on thursday, joe biden went aggressively after governor romney on taxes. let's take a look at that. >> you just never know what game or what position governor romney's going to come with. you know, the centerpiece of
income taxes have a government comeback, ryan had a ready-made zinger. >> with respect that quote, vice president knows sometimes words don't come out of your mouth the right way. >> bideryan was earnest. if not brand. the weakest moment was when he said the stimulus was wasteful spending. >> he sent me two letters saying by the way, can you send me stimulus money for companies here in state of wisconsin. we sent millions of dollars. you know why he said -- >> you did ask for stimulus? >> sure he did. >> on two occasions we advocated for constituents applying for grants. it's what we do. we did it for all constituents. >> i love that. i love that. >> romney continues to surge in battleground state polls. in florida, tampa bay times, "miami herald" poll has romney with the biggest lead in weeks. american research group poll shows romney leading narrowly in new hampshire. 50 to 46. >> the next presidential debate will be this coming tuesday on long island. then on friday, fox news learned romney plans another major policy speech. the next one on spending. trying to redouse the $16 trillio
of their ideas on their tax cut plan. things the president did not do against governor romney. you'll see after, coming out next tuesday, you know, whether the president's taken this to heart. i think you've got two strategies. one is to counter all the things that the obama campaign thinks were lies, you know, coming out of romney. and also to sort of lay out a road map of what the president has done, and what he intends to do in a second term. >> aimee, as the president does study for tuesday, are there any clear openings that paul ryan left for him to exploit when he faces mitt romney? >> i think what you're going to see is he's going to ask for specifics on tuesday night. he's going to push him on the tax plan. he's also going to push the famous 47% line. you know, democrats really were upset that he didn't use that line of attack before. vice president biden sort of opened the door for him to do that on tuesday. i think you're going to see more a more aggressive obama take that stance a little more. >> but the fact that the president didn't go after him during the debate on the 47% and the
is that this is a guy supporting sequestration, which is devastating the state of virginia. supports the president's tax plan which is devastating to him in northern virginia. >> shelly berkeley in nevada, is there any chance that she wins a senate seat? >> three months ago democratings only had a 30,000 voter registrati registration increasing the number of democrats. >> let's talk about these races where we in the media -- you guys are fighting in turf that you proerl didn't think dwrourp fighting. why is north dakota close. >> i think heidi is going everything she can do to prove she's not a democrat. she said she supports president kbaum's agenda. said the health care law she would save money in the health care law. recently it came out that she's been taking money from an anti-fracing -- the more people learn about heidi hyde camp, the less they like her. there was a lot to lenard about heidi, that's coming out now and it's -- >> let me just say one thing about north dakota, it's interesting that all the things that rob just talked about are positions that the heidi hyde camp doesn't actually uphol
revenue neutral. >> we'll get to the deductions but the cut in tax rates. >> the cut in tax rates is lower all americans' tax rates. >> how much does it cost? >> revenue neutral. >> it's not revenue neutral unless you take away deductions. >> that's where i'm going. >> we're going to get to that. >> lowering tax rates broadening the tax base works you -- >> you haven't given me the math. >> i don't have the -- it would take me too long to go through all of the math. >> worse still, the public has begun to notice. >> where are the answers? i mean, why aren't you more specific? i heard you was it sunday when you were on fox and you didn't answer his question about how we're going to, you know, what are your plans. >> so has the romney upgrade resulted in a paul ryan downgrade? in the new issue of "time" magazine, michael crowley writes once famous for long policy sem seminars ryan steered clear of specifics where sarah palin went rogue, rhine has gone vague. phil, gop strategist extraordinaire has paul ryan gone vague and if he is vague how does that play out on the debate stage? >> what a s
tv ad that strikes a familiar theme. hitting mitt romney on his tax plan. take a listen. >> you paid 14% in federal taxes. that's the capital gains rate. is that fair to the guy who makes $50,000 and paid a higher rate than you did? so you think it is fair. >> yeah. i think it's the right way to encourage economic growth. >> lower tax rates for him, then us. is that the way to grow america? >> well, expect that one seen on a tv screen near you especially if you're in a swing state. from mitt romney and the gop meanwhile a new ad strategy. the "new york post" says romney and his colleagues are looking at a high rate high media strategy. pro romney ad buys double and even tripled in some key swing states this week. >>> later today paul ryan wrapped up a campaign rally just a few short hours ago. he echoed a theme we heard in the debate friday night. >> the president had his chance. he had his choices. he came in with one-party rule. able to do everything on his own choosing. and just look at where we are now. 23 million americans are struggling for work today. in fact, since the presid

to do a number of things and he's been stymied. his major policy goal, changing the tax structure. so that the wealthy pay their fair share, to me, is of towering importance. >> bill: do you believe in income redistribution? >> any time we change the tax code -- >> bill: no, no. >> changing the tax code a little bit. >> bill: there is a philosophy among liberal americans and you and i are fat cats, we're 1%ers. >> indeed. >> bill: the philosophy is affleck and o'reilley, they can pony up 40, 45% of what they got. we'll spread it around. >> i thought we were going to return to the prebush tax cut numbers. but yes. i don't know what your nut looks like, but i don't spend so much that i can't afford to pay a little bit more in taxes and i think that's important. i think the stimulus was a good thing by and large. i think it was absolutely necessary. i think it saved us from getting deep noor recession. but i'm not here to give you obama talking points. >> bill: no, no. we're interested in you and what you think. last question, if the president loses to mitt romney because you're a massac
of reducing tax marginal tax rates and increasing revenues and the cost it might add to the deficit is criticized as being non-specific. how do they respond to that? >> governor romney has laid out a framework. any time you have a plan such as this, you don't want to put all the details out there because there are negotiations that need to take place. the framework has been looked up by six different independent organizations including those from harvard and princeton. to say this plan will work. so the details don't need to be out there right now. the framework is very clear about what mitt romney and paul ryan want to do to strengthen our middle-class. >> gregg: i might say that the tax policy center which is cited by the obama campaign it's going to cost five trillion has been said by the director of the to be completely untrue. let me move on. the president has added two new things to his campaign speeches. he tells his audiences he says romney wants to kill big bird but more credibly he points to the unemployment rate that drops below 8%. it shows the economy under his leadersh

that the president has made. these are taxed on the democrats. chawlz -- [cheering and applause] now, what else are they going to do? harry reid said that, they want to repeal governor romney does the student loan reforms. so if they got a lot in common with medicare. here's what happens, president obama and the congress in 2009 adopted a long-term change in the way students borrowed money to go to college. and it used to be for years and years that the government gave money to the banks in the form of guarantees, we would guarantee 90% of the bank loan that the banks made to the students. set ago is side the reserve in case the money didn't get repaid. it turned out the price of the loans went down and the default rate went down once you made the rates down, people could afford to pay it. we started letting the students to pay it at fixed percentage of north carolina. nobody had to drop out of school because they borrowed money.
